Italian Dry Chestnuts
Giannetti Artisans’s Italian Dry Chestnuts from Tuscany are a truly delicious treat. The Apuane Alps is the home of our wonderful Chestnuts. A true Tuscan specialty item right outside of Lucca, Italy.
It is important to realize that we pick and select our chestnuts carefully. Henceforth, a “metato”(covered roasting chamber/house) dries our delicious chestnuts for 40 days at a constant temperature of 86°F. See Metato: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metato .
Eventually, we hand select and hand pack the chestnuts once dried. Furthermore, the dry chestnuts do not contain any kind of preservatives. Giannetti Artisans’s Italian Dry Chestnuts are a true all natural product. Keep in mind however, that our chestnuts are a seasonal item. Unfortunately, they may not always be available throughout the year.
Overall our chestnuts confirm the authenticity, origin and freshness of a very exclusive item as all Giannetti Artisans products!
You can use our Dry Chestnuts for stuffing or stews. This item exemplifies a true taste of Italian culture! Nonetheless, our delicious Giannetti Artisans Chestnut Flour is made with the same delicious Dry Chestnuts from Tuscany. – 1lb bag. – See: https://giannettiartisans.com/shop/artisan-food-of-tuscany/natural-italian-chestnut-flour/
